It's a Booster bonanza this week, as Booster Gold appears in not only his own title, Convergence Booster Gold #2, but also the final issue of the main event, Convergence #8.

DC would have us believe that following the Convergence break Batman will be dead again. If this sounds like an overused cliche, perhaps that's because it is. It was only five years ago today that Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne #2 saw Booster Gold join DC's best-selling heroes on a trip through time in search of the caped crusader.
The Time Masters played almost no role in recovering Bruce Wayne then, and they are very unlikely to show up around Gotham this time either. Rip Hunter is too busy memorizing his lines for his upcoming television series, DC's Legends of Tomorrow (a weird name for a show whose newest character first saw print nearly 40 years ago).

Grab your test sheets and a red pen; it's time to grade your answers to last week's really hard Booster Gold quiz.
- Daniel Carter was the fifth-best Term-Life Salesman at Evergreen Insurance. Fifth. Out of six. (52 Week 19, 2006)
- According to Checkmate, Michelle's middle initial is "A". (Countdown to Infinite Crisis #1, 2005)
- Jonar Carter walked out on his family when his twins, Michael and Michelle, were 4 years old. (Booster Gold #6, 1986)
- Building a casino on KooeyKooeyKooey was all Blue Beetle's idea. (Justice League America #33, 1989)
- The resurrected Max Lord didn't bother to run a smear campaign on Booster Gold because "Booster's life needs no discrediting." (Justice League Generation Lost #2, 2010)
- As he told Rip Hunter, even Booster Gold knows not to tug on Superman's cape. (Time Masters #2, 1990)
- Future policeman Broderick found it appalling that 20th-century Americans eat meat, burn fossil fuels, waste fresh water on things like cleaning clothes, bicker over world politics, and freely possess firearms. (Booster Gold #18, 1987)
- Dirk Davis' daughter was Sarah. (Booster Gold #12, 1986)
- Superman thought Supernova was "on the level," as an experienced and well-intentioned hero. (He was right, of course.) (52 Week 10, 2006)
- As a reward for defeating the Royal Flush gang, Batman gave Booster Gold a smile (and membership in the Justice League). (Justice League #4, 1987)
How many did you get right? I told you it was hard. If you knew the answer to even half of those questions, give yourself a Goldstar!

I'm out of town and away from the computer for the week, but I've still got your daily dose of Booster Gold covered.
Dan Jurgens put one of those "artist's sketch" variants of Justice League #16 to good use when he put Booster Gold on the cover. Thanks to Rafael M. at ComicArtFans.com for the pic.

I don't typically enjoy seeing comic book stories in live action, but if there was a Booster Gold show on television, I'd watch.
Last week's poll question: Would a Booster Gold show find an audience on network television? (74 votes)
Until we can get Booster Gold on TV, we've got him in our comics, but that's not good enough for some. They like to commission Booster Gold custom art to hang on the living room wall. How about you?
This week's poll question: Have you ever commissioned a Booster Gold sketch from an artist?
